Didn't expect such a fun night:
-handsome English actor at the top of his game,
-inspiring show and
-engaged audience,
-catered opening night with organic food and drink.
I learned so much about a time in history I didn't know anything...continued

Quotes & Highlights

June 20 is opening night with a reception, including wine, cheese, and dessert, at the venue following the performance.
See Goldstar member reviews of the play’s run at its previous location.
“Unmistakable topicality and human interest infuses From Wharf Rats to Lord of the Docks … undeniably apropos for the corporatist-beleaguered present.” -Los Angeles Times
“Not only do we see this master stage craftsman in a sterling performance, we also are informed of an important and rarely broached part of America’s sordid labor history. For anyone who works for a living, or is dependent on workers to live (and that’s all of us), From Wharf Rats to Lord of the Docks is a must-see show.”
“Ruskin’s hour-long play is a gentle reminder of who this man was and how valuable he was to the global growth of protections for longshoremen, warehousemen, and merchant-marine sailors.” —
